The spread of nvCT had a substantial impact on C. trachomatis identification, epidemiology, and public health in Sweden. Lessons learned from this experience include the importance of investigating the incidence and epidemiology of infection in detail, the frequent participation in appropriate quality assurance schemes, and the careful design of diagnostic assays. The nvCT presents a unique opportunity to study the spread of a single C. trachomatis strain within both the human and bacterial populations; this may substantially increase our knowledge of epidemiology and transmission of chlamydial infections, and other sexually transmitted infections.
